Poet Diane Glancy wrote, "I think in terms of revision because I have been revised." Our finished work should reflect personal growth, rather than remain a static example of who we were in a specific time and place. In this workshop we’ll learn valuable strategies for revising a personal essay for publication, including shaping a reliable narrator, knowing when (and how) to cut your favorite paragraph, and determining when to ask for feedback (and when to ignore it.). We'll also look at published personal essays and their various stages of revision to give you the opportunity to see an essay go from first draft to publication. Then we’ll finish up by looking at practical aspects of the submission process like word count, format, and navigating online submission managers like Submittable. Come prepared with two printed copies of the essay you would like to revise, a pair of scissors, tapeand an open mind!
